Maserati has stopped the production of the Gran Turismo, as announced recently by the company on its social media accounts. The on-going generation was introduced in 2007 and after 12 years, the company has intimidated to bring out a second generation as an electric vehicle in 2021.
To mark the end of the production, or rather ‘celebrate’ it in the company’s words; it created a one-off Maserati Gran Turismo with an exclusive paint job, that slowly gradients from blue to black and fades off with white. It’s called the Gran Turismo Zeda, which Maserati says will “drive us towards the future”. It marks the company’s transition into a new era of cleaner, greener electric vehicles, which will start a new journey for the company and its upcoming models.
Over a production period of 12 years, Maserati sold more than 28,000 Gran Turismo cars. Work has begun in Modena plant to upgrade the production line. On its return in 2021, the Gran Turismo will compete with the likes of BMW 8 series and Mercedes S-Class Coupe.
